Dear Matt
Many members have commented on the fabulous under- water and under-ice photography in your presentation.  You showed us a fascinating world and environment – a place we are unlikely to experience ourselves.
Once again, on-behalf of our club members, thank-you so much for your presentation

Dear Matt,
On behalf of the students and teachers at Mother of God Primary School I would like to thank you for the day and endorse the great work you did with our students and staff.
Our students and staff had a fantastic day which combined both learning about the marine and coastal environment as well as time for children to play and enjoy being in the natural environment.
This was effectively achieved through the combination of discussion and question time with students, followed by hands on learning where children touched different plants and animals and they then went exploring the rock pools where they found their own surprises and deepened their learning.
Students themselves have shared how highly successful the day was, and projects and discussion subsequent to this are testament to this outcome.
Thanks also for bringing all your resources on the day as well as diving for marine plant and animal life which, when displayed in a touch tank, proved to be extremely engaging.
We look forward to working with you in the future and wish you all the best in continuing to deliver such engaging and enjoyable work with students and staff.Feb_2016_Jawbone (1077 x 808)

Matt provides a unique perspective on STEM resulting from his varied professional and life experiences.  He is genuinely interested in creating a learning environment that draws on real life learnings and has the ability to weave theory through his delivery to provide an all round ‘scientific’ experience for students and teacher alike.

Diver Matt Incursions are the perfect mix of theory, hands on and excitement. Matt is engaging and his ability to share his personal experiences makes his sessions not only informative but unique. The children are highly absorbed and continually have thought provoking questions about the Sea. Matt allows the students to share their thoughts and ideas and he shows them how they fit with the information of the session. Matt covers a wide range of curriculum areas including, but not limited to, Science, Geography and Mathematics. We look forward to having Diver Matt back to visit very soon.
